Memorizing Scripture

Psalm 119:11 says” I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.

Remember in Sunday School? Your teacher gave you scriptures you had to recite? Oh I surely do remember those days. When we read this verse here the Psalmist is reminding you and I that we are to hide the word in our hearts so that we don’t sin against the Lord.


When we memorize scripture it helps us so much because we can use it the moment we need it, but if a person does not memorize scripture they are prepared.

The Lord in His Grace knows that you and I aren’t going to remember the entire bible verse for verse, but what we can do is start remembering some of the verses. Imagine if you would what would happen if a child of God never knew one verse in the Bible? It’s even hard to even think about right? It’s like a person having a flat tire and no spare in the trunk no jack and your stranded on a road all alone and there is not a single car riding by for miles. Surely you can imagine the panic look on our face as your jaw drops.  In a situation like this it would take an act of God to come to your aid to help you get your car running.

Same analogy when it comes to memorizing scripture, there is a need for us to memorize God’s word. AMEN.

Lord God help us to memorize your word for your word is life to us.

  1. Desiray – thank you for the important reminder. When my neck was broken over four years ago and I was laying on the floor of my kitchen unable to move (I was paralyzed from the shoulders down), I recited Scripture that I had stored up in my heart for years. It’s the only thing that got me through those couple of days until I was found. I am so grateful that God gives us his word to encourage, protect, and inspire us. God bless.

    1. Yes Terri its those reasons as to why we have to hide the word in our heart. We dont know what ee will face in life but Jesus knew these days will come and so He prepares us by telling us to hide His word in our hearts.
